What is C.R.A.M?

Getting ready for college goes far beyond researching for schools and taking the right classes. Both parents and students must consider the various factors that influence college readiness. C.R.A.M (college readiness and mentoring) is a program created by Bay Area Tutoring Association to help students of all backgrounds to get ready for college. COVID-19 has caused numerous colleges to remove their orientations

and Fall classes altogether, resulting in many students very uncertain about what their future college experience may be. We offer various tools to help students be ready for college, even with curveballs like COVID-19.

Here are just some of the many services we offer:

  • Financial aid advising: From filling out the form to tools to help college be the most affordable.
  • College application workshops: Describing your volunteer experience, extracurricular activities, and personal experiences in the essay portion have been especially difficult for some students, we offer workshops to help guide your application process.
  • College fit mentorship: What colleges look for and what you want to look for in colleges may not always align, but we can help!
  • Presentations/ workshops on college readiness: giving you an overview of all the factors for college readiness to help give you a greater understanding of what to expect in terms of college.
